Nolan WeberMessages from Nolan's Coaches:

It is with heavy hearts we say good bye, for now to Nolan Weber. He was an inspiration to the entire team, with his fighting spirit, good looks and beautiful smile.  What an exceptional athlete! Nothing could keep Nolan from training. Nothing! He will be missed.  Our prayers and thoughts go to the Weber family and to Maci.

May The Lord bless you and keep you.
May The Lord make his face to shine upon you,
And be gracious to you.
May The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.

Angie and Stellan Bengtsson

I must say that it was a pleasure to have known Nolan, he was truly an inspiration, he exhibited a sense of calm even when faced with adversities. He will truly be missed and my prayers are with his family and friends as we all deal with the loss of a member of the para family.

Keith Evans
